Re: IE 8 Messed up my computer big time.....Help!!!
There are several things you can do. Locate the following using
Windows Explorer ... not Internet Explorer:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
and click on that file ... iexplore.exe
This should cause IE8 to open 'normally'. Go back to Windows Explorer
and RIGHT CLICK on that same file, mouse over SEND TO and left click
on Desktop. This will put your blue E on the desktop.
If none of this works, try opening Control Panel, left click
Add/Remove Programs, and UNinstall IE8 which should revert you back to
IE7 and hopefully your blue E on your desktop.
